Function Naming

Naming conventions for the Intel IPP functions are similar for all covered domains.

Function names in Intel IPP have the following general format:

ipp<data-domain ><name>_< datatype>[_<descriptor >](<parameters>)

The elements of this format are explained in the sections that follow.

Note

In this manual, each function is introduced by its short name (without the ipps prefix and modifiers) and a brief description of its purpose.

The ipps prefix in function names is always used in the code examples. In the text, this prefix is usually omitted when referring to the function group.
